She is the perfect starting point for the multiyear design development agreement between MCP, the biggest South American custom yacht builder and the Dutch Studio Vripack signed earlier this year.
Marnix J. Hoekstra, Bart M. Bouwhuis
Established in 1980 in the port of Santos, 30 minutes by helicopter from São Paulo international airport, MCP is now the leader in custom yacht building in South America, responsible for building the largest aluminum yachts in the region. With a track record of over 250 projects the MCP team has all experience in-house to handle turn key projects.
Established in 1961, Vripack is a leading full-service yacht design, naval architecture and engineering studio with over 7300 projects under its belt. Vripack focuses on realizing better ships in less time for private customers and yards world-wide. At Vripack we believe that a good design should not meet all requirements, it should surpass them to create a boat that goes beyond dreams.
MCP 40 METERS SEAVIEW
The fly invites you to enjoy a gastronomic experience with a large table dominating the space under main mast shadow. Aft, large solariums to enjoy the anchorages and navigation. The wheelhouse, embedded in the body of normal pilot house volume, did not deprive the Ship Owner and his guests of the navigation front view. By a starboard staircase going down from the said wheelhouse, on the deck just below (seaview deck), one accesses a huge glassed and protected lounge with a privileged front view to the sea.
Many comfortable seating areas are found on the SEAVIEW DECK below the fly. Large outdoor living area with sofas aft, separated by automatic doors drive the guests through environments decorated with large rectangular sofas. Home theater and starboard lift TV with huge panes with panoramic views of the sea. Forward, a convivial area for protected navigation monitoring, with an external sofa in the bow and a terrace to enjoy a breeze on the afternoons while sharing the sunset.
On the port side midship the discreet crew service is obtained through stairs and doors positioned in a way that guest´s privacy is a must.
The main deck offers generous accommodations for outdoor dining at the stern with a large table for 12 people. Every area can be closed with side screens and glass doors in the access to the side corridors. Moving inside, the main salon has a volume that allows for several arrangement options with a separate service area to port. As the mid-ship advances the boat becomes a full beam deck layout allowing for the assembly of two huge guest suites mirrored on the center line with large windows to the side. Moving forward, at the end of the corridor the master suite, also 'full beam' encompassing all volume from side to side of the boat, with panoramic windows,
owner´s private closet and master bathroom.
On the lower deck, astern there is a complete SPA, port gym area and storage compartment for diving, fishing, among other belongings. Jet-skis and dive thrusters are housed in an enclosed space in the bow. The 5-meter-long dinghy is positioned ahead, in accordance with the current international safety regulations for classified and transoceanic vessels.
Half a ship to port, in a place separated from the guests' circulation, a spacious kitchen is integrated into a preparation area for dishes that will be served to the guests on the various decks. The MCP 40 meters Seaview is designed to allow crew members to have friendly acess to the engine room and circulate all important parts of the vessel without interfering in the passenger lounge areas. In the crew area, portside there is also a laundry.
Forward there are comfortable and easily accessed crew cabins.
The starboard side lower deck, also accommodates the two guest bedroom suites having a panoramic ocean view in an environment totally separate from the crew, with private hall and staircase rising to the main deck.
Modern concepts in all environments, within the International norms of the renowned Classification Societies, alienate the perfect finishing, in a customized arrangement, with all technology and safety in the sea.

"Creating maximum space value on a 40 meters er required a creative approach to space planning" says Bart Bouwhuis, creative director at Vripack. "A very energetic co-creation process between the Owner, MCP and our team lead to a perfectly sensible yet highly unconventional layout. Her main deck contains two guest cabins in addition to the Owner's stateroom. Two additional VIP rooms are located on the lower deck and the upper deck is fully dedicated for the family with a forward-facing observation lounge including an a-symmetrical balcony for private family moments. The sky lounge has gullwing lookouts allowing for a forward-facing view adjacent to the connection to the large sheltered aft deck. All this neatly separated from the crew so they can perform to their best abilities as well."
A balance between boldness and refined elegance, comfort and performance are the parameters that define this exquisite 40 meters superyacht. The extraordinary partnership between these renowned brands brings to this project a result that is simply exceptional.
By contemplating its exterior, it enchants and attracts, inviting guests to embark and enjoy their unique sense of hospitality. A superyacht perfect for any coastal or transoceanic route. A sea view maximized through large windows, simultaneous appearance of classic and modern, fit for refined travel, action-packed adventures to the outermost points of the planet or relaxing family cruises.
The MCP 40 meters Seaview features two powerful Caterpillar C32 engines of 1,925 MHP each, which together with a specially designed hull, offer a maximum speed of 21 knots and cruising range of 3,500 nautical miles. Economy and comfort transoceanic range at 10.8 Knots consuming in total only 88 liters per hour.
Large open spaces are a trademark of the deck plans. Large internal and external glazed living areas.
The privacy on board was also an important achievement of the final lay out. All environments are accessed and serviced by the crew via stairs and corridors independent of the guests.
